The exhibition 중 Focus South Korea reflects on the Republic of Korea primarily from the perspective of ethnic Koreans who grew up in the West and explicitly deal with their actual origins in their artistic work.
The five artists Kahee Jeong, kate-hers RHEE, Tae Woo Kang, Florian Bong-kil Grosse and Eric Strelow will show works on the human injury of the Korean people caused by the war, which continues to this day, visualizations of Korean philosophy in the occidental painting tradition, photo-artistic and conceptual interpretations of urban life, and finally also feminist positions, which artistically interpret and critically question the still strongly patriarchally structured society of South Korea by means of naturalistic and abstract depictions.
The aim of the project is an artistic mediation of South Korean culture and society beyond the popular mainstream, which finds favor in this country primarily through K-pop, television series and gastronomy.
The selected works cover almost the entire visual arts spectrum. Painting, photography, sculpture, installation, video and conceptual art are given equal consideration and are embedded in the special architecture of the Meinblau Projektraum in terms of spatial aesthetics.
